M.O.A

lets talk cons...chucks, jacks anything...

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I could get a pair of those vintage 1946 chucks in size 8-9, preferably the hi-tops? I thought I had a sure thing at baggins, but despite what their site says, they do not have the burnt red hi-tops in size 8. Damnit. I missed the boat on these, and I really want a pair.

u cant go wrong w/chucks...i dont care that everyone else has a pair, they look good to me, which, obviously, should be all that matters.

I've never owned a pair of converse anything. Even when I was young. I wore desert boots only.

Chucks are like tattoos, I think they look great on some people.

btw there are helmut lang chucks for sale in my sig ↓

Why the hell does every girl on my college campus has a pair of chucks.

Was this another one of those trends started by a hollywood celeb?

I keep having to repeat this... how the hell is a 60 year old shoe design that can be seen in everything from West Side Story to (I think) The Breakfast Club to the feet of Kurt Cobain a 'trend'? Certainly since Nirvana they've been the staple shoe of general rock fans the world over, I can't really speak before that what with being 22.

Don't get me wrong, a naked hooker in those would be great.....preferably a dead naked hooker, and preferably in my basement.

qft!!!

also, anyone else find jack purcelles uncomfortable? I've only owned the leather kind and they gave me blisters on the top of my pinky toe.

i agree. it's completely transcended the idea of a "trend" and become a complete classic in every sense of the word...and it's BEEN like that!

on that note, some interesting japonverse

well, if we're talking regular releases, i will always buy chucks, esp since I get em in bangkok (one of the places where converse produces their product) for approx $17USD from my regular spots.

thanks kix and sub. from what i've heard from guys working at shoe stores in japan, when converse went bankrupt few years ago a japanese company bought the converse name to be used just in japan. that's why they can pretty much produce whatever fuck models they want to, like the one i have, without having nike (who owns converse) approving it.

one thing about this is that they can't put "made in u.s.a." anywhere on their shoes because they aren't. and that's why many japanese kids value "made in u.s.a." chucks and other converse sneakers more than the stuff they can readily buy, even though there are numbers of dope stuff we can't get over here. funny.

I've still got my US made black chucks from way back when. I've been wearing them out lately.

St. Alfreds has their fancy purse leather lo chucks on display. It's a (red) product, but don't hold that against them. If I were going to buy a pair of textured leather shoes, they'd be the ones.

a year ago i had two pairs of converse IDs ... one high, one low ... ... all black uppers, with white midsoles ... just like the hiroshi joints ... and took black markers to the toe just for that look. keeps the utility the toe without contrasting toe cap. while the markers did rub a bit which gave it a pretty neat kinda effect ... i really just wanted that toe cap to stay black.

i'm going to buy a few of those fuckers.

The Jackass 2 leather Chuck His are pretty nice, black stitching and parchment coloured rubber. Told myself not to spend that much on Chucks due to the short longevity of the outsoles but these were pretty sweet and hell, they stopped me from buying Kiefers.

Anyone know if/where I could get ahold of optical white velcro ("3 strap") chucks? Low or high top, leather or canvas, whatever. I found these: http://www.converse.com/zproductdetails.asp?zcatid=2&zsubcatid=&zgenid=&leftnavid=1&sku=1U419

but I really prefer them with the red and blue stripes around the sole.
